Content-type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

Hi Dee & the Group,

For several years I have been trying to nail down the father of John "Jack" Butler of Bladen County. John was
born, according to tradition, "near Clinton" in 1800 and died at his farm near Bladenboro in 1886. He was
married twice - first to Frances "Fannie" Nance who bore him the following children:

The first child was Mary Ann Butler, born 20 Nov 1820. Mary Ann married Daniel Johnson (1825-1903)
and had, possibly among others, Elizabeth .A., Emaline, and William.

The second child was James Anderson Butler, born about 1822, who married Olivia High. Their children
were, among others, John Wright in 1847 and Frances Ann, born 2 July 1842 who married Snowden
Hester and who died on 7 July 1916.

Next came John T. Butler, born 22 July 1824, died on 6 Aug 1902, who married Elizabeth A. Davis on 1
April 1847. John and Elizabeth had eight children; John P., Narcissa Ann, Darius Alonzo, Edith Martilla,
George Washington, William Ayers, Dillon A., and Isaac Ross.

Elizabeth G. Butler was born to John and Frances about 1825. She married Amos High and died in 1842
giving birth to a daughter, Frances Florilla High.

The last child born to this union was Nepsey Win Caroline Butler, born on 20 January 1827. Nepsey
married Daniel White and had James, John A., Frances O., and Mary A. E. White. Nepsey died on 27
November 1887.

Sometime shortly after the taking of the 1850 census, John's wife Frances "Fannie" Nance Butler died.
By the time of the taking of the next census in 1860, John had remarried to Elizabeth Gainer Johnson, born
about 1827, and fathered three more children .

The first child of this marriage was Sally F. Butler, born in 1855, who married Robert Lyon.

Next came Robert Quincey Butler on 6 May 1856. Robert "Uncle Bob" Butler would eventually move to
Wilmington, marry Dorcie Elizabeth Huddleston, have several children, and die there on 17 October 1935.

On 11 May 1858, Gainor gave birth to a second son, Thomas Virt Butler. Tom married twice - first to
Manarcy Jane Edwards, then to her cousin, Ida Belle Edwards.

Isabella Butler was born on 2 November 1860 and died on 13 April 1930.

Charles T. "Uncle Charlie" Butler was born in 1862.

Elias George Butler was born in 1869. He married Elizabeth Arcenia Russ (1875 - 1934), daughter of
James Anderson Russ and Lucretia Guyton Edwards, and had one child, James Troy "Jackie" Butler, who
married first Dolly Mae Soles, then later in life he married Charlene Ruth Coggins.

Martha Butler was born in 1865.

Enois "Noah" Butler was born in 1871.

James Butler was born in 1879.

The only indication I have of John's possible parentage is a deed. This deed transfers ownership of a certain
parcel of land from John to one of his sons. That same parcel of land was granted to one Robert Butler of
Bladen County by the Governor in the 1780s (I'm writing from memory here). In those days, the only way land
could pass from one person to another without a deed was from father to son & I've not been able to find an
earlier deed for that property. I was wondering if any of your references could shed light on John's parentage?

Any help appreciated.

Warm Regards,

Butch Butler

. . ."The descendants of Daniel and his son John Daniel lived on Red
Hill Road and Western Prong. They lived on their plantation "in the
magnolias" on Red Hill Road".
"The descendants of William James lived on their plantation located
behind Brown Marsh Church on Poe-Elkins Road until it was sold".
"Captain James Shipman, born 1751 at Brown Marsh, went to visit
relatives near Western Prong and became very ill and died. He had to
be buried in the Nance/Shipman Cemetery because the water was so high
in the Red Hill Swamp that the family could not take him home. There
were as many as seven bridges through the swamp".
I really need first names on this one. There are literally dozens of Williamsons that could have been the ancestors of your Williamsons but without first names its almost an impossible task.

Oh yes, other than the Smith and Sessoms lines, what other Robeson Co NC
lines do you descend from?

I descend from Barker, Britt, Byrd, Daughtrey, Davis, Freeman, Ivey, McNair,
McNatt, Mercer, Musselwhite, Nance, Parker, Pittman, Powers, Regan, Reagin,
Smith, Todd, and West. The only unfortunate thing about genealogy, is now
that I am doing research as a business, I have not had time to put any
research into my lines.


"Joab Mears came to Fair Bluff in early 1800's from Bladen County and
purchased 800 acres of land. He died in 1818. Joab's wife Mary was born in
1784 in Robeson County. Their children were: Rhoda (1806 - 1872) who lived
at Fair Bluff; Alfred (1808 - 1872) who married Eliza Nance, a daughter of
